Re: 2020 Presidential Election: Joe Biden vs Whoever the Republicans Nominate

I'd like to think that a governor who was the target of a kidnapping plot by terrorists would be seen in a more sympathetic light at the moment. I don't have the numbers to back it up, however.

She's 87 and needs to go. Really looking forward to the ensuing Democratic civil war where The Squad + new Squad members gun hard and very openly for all the rich, out of touch fossils in the Senate and House after the election is over.

I'm reminded of the Damon Wayans stand up bit from the 90s about him becoming a dad and the realization that there is no way to be sure that you've raised kids right because "one will be a doctor and the other will be a crackhead" when it comes to the Bidens.

If somehow the Democrats can steer any Hunter Biden news into "Jared and Ivanka literally made $X million over the last 4 years because Trump is president and you as a media enterprise couldn't give a shit less so what the fuck are we talking about" it would be a good counter, in my opinion.
